CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – For the second straight year, Virginia will be hosting the first and second rounds of both the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships.
The matches will take place Friday, May 6 through Sunday, May 8 at the Virginia Tennis Facility at the Boar’s Head Resort.
Tickets will be $5 for general admission and $3 for students with a valid ID per day. Ages 2 and up are required to have a ticket. Tickets will be available for purchase starting Tuesday online, over the phone, or at the Bryant Hall ticket office and can be picked up on-site at the Virginia Tennis Facility at the Boar’s Head Resort.
The men’s team (22-5) earned the Atlantic Coast Conference’s automatic bid into the championship and was named the No. 7 overall seed. Virginia will open play by facing NEC Champion Fairleigh Dickinson (10-11) as the second match on Friday. Penn (19-5) and VCU (21-6) will play in the first match of the day.
The women’s team (20-5) earned an at-large bid into the field of 64 teams, earning a No. 5 seed. UVA will host Horizon League Champion Youngstown State (13-9) in the second match on Saturday. Army West Point (25-9) and Princeton (11-10) will play in the opener.
This year, the tournament resumes its super-regional format. The 16 teams advancing from the second round of the tournament will participate in two-team super regionals on the campuses of the higher-seeded teams, set to take place on May 13-14. As top-eight seeds, Virginia is in line to host super regionals next weekend should they advance.
The eight super regional winners will then advance to the site of the finals in Champaign, Ill. with the quarterfinals through championship matches being contested May 19-22. NCAA Singles and Doubles will take place May 23-28 in that same location.
This is the Virginia men’s 18th-consecutive NCAA Championship bid and the 17th time that they have hosted a regional. Virginia has won four NCAA titles, including three consecutive from 2015-17.
The women are making their 21st appearance in the NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships and their fourth-consecutive appearance under head coach Sara O’Leary.
Virginia hosted both the men’s and women’s regionals for seven consecutive years from 2010-2016 and also did so last year.
